Around Lorgues-en-ProvenceProvence, naturally...
Start off your day from Lorgues, drive across olive groves and vineyards to visit in the charming villages
around la Bastide du Pin. Perched on top of hills, quietly lazing in the curve of a river near waterfalls, protected by cliffs or rocky gorges, each village has its own character and charm.
A shady square with plane trees, narrow streets where we hear murmuring water flowing in fountains or wash houses, the charm of authentic Provence.
In this page, we hope to make you want to discover all these gems. We will be happy to share our favourite spots and talk with you about those!
